Give to Project Water Help
March 30th, 2015 12:45 PM

Tennessee American Water asks customers to help those less fortunate

While many developing countries struggle with building and financing the infrastructure needed for water systems, closer to home Tennessee American Water recognizes that there are times when customers may struggle to pay their monthly water bill.   

That's why Tennessee American Water is making customers aware about its program Project Water Help.  It is funded through voluntary contributions from Tennessee American Water customers and is designed to provide water utility payment assistance to customers who are in need.

Customers who want to contribute to Project Water Help can do so by simply marking the box on the back of their water bills and designating a specific dollar amount that will be added to their bills on a monthly basis. 

Customer contributions are disbursed from Tennessee American Water to United Way of Greater Chattanooga, which administers the program through its 2-1-1 Call Resource Center. Tennessee American Water customers who need help with their water utility bill call 2-1-1 to see if they are eligible for assistance. United Way then refers eligible callers to the City of Chattanooga’s Department of Human Services, the Hamilton County’s Department of Human Services or the Salvation Army for financial assistance with their water bill.

“Sometimes life circumstances make it difficult for people to meet their financial obligations. We recognize that water is essential. Project Water Help is a way for customers who are able to give to help out a neighbor in need,” said Tennessee American Water President Deron Allen.  “We appreciate the philanthropic tradition of the Greater Chattanooga community and invite residents to support Project Water Help.”

Since 1996, over $60,000 has been generously donated by Tennessee American Water customers to Project Water Help. For information regarding Project Water Help, visit www.tennesseeamwater.com
